The reverse Turing test is now used in all sorts of websites to allow humans to distinguish themselves from machines.
The human (that would be me or you) is presented with a simple task which to understand it needs a human. Tasks such as reading fuzzy numbers or characters blended over a busy background (captcha).
Such as this:
Encountered today. And difficult to solve, at least for me.
